Special mention today for 20-week-old Greyhound-Labrador cross Alfie who's been given up by a succession of owners during his short life after they found out he was seriously ill.
Alfie has ended up at the Happy Endings animal sanctuary in East Sussex where they are appealing for help to fund an operation after finding out he has a rare liver condition that stops his body getting rid of toxins.
Alfie has a Facebook page which you can join and share with your friends.
Alfie looks so lovely. He reminds me a bit of my friend Frankie.
I hope he gets his operation and a new forever home for the new year.
